I know there is one for the USNA
Yes! But it is not really a book but more like an Internet forum.
Service Academy Forums I believe is the name of it....
The USMMA website really is your starting point.
Sorry to be snarky, what exactly are you looking for? This site is a great place to start.
yes I know about the forums. While on the USNA forum it was suggested that I buy the book
The Naval Academy Candidate Book: How to Prepare, How to Get In, How to Survive.
So I was wondering it there was a similiar book recommendation for the USMMA
find a USMMA field rep
I do not know of a specific "book"... but there should be a USMMA field rep in your area. The USMMA field rep would be a great person to talk to- he (she) could help walk you through the whole process. What state are you from?
I know of no similar book for obtaining admission to the USMMA but the process is pretty well described on the Academy's Admissions' "How to Apply" page. It includes a pretty good ~ 10 minute video from Lt. Broxton "one" of the admissions officers - - and the attendant text on that page here:
It and your Senator and Congreesman's Constituent Affairs POC at their local district offices are the best, from my experience, places to start.
If you've already done that and were/are looking for more then my suggestion is to contact the assigned admissions officer for your area of the country - contact information here:
and a local admissions Field Representative in your area - contact information here:
Hope this helps and isn't redundant to what you've already found. If anyone knows of better current information I'm sure they will post it - but of all the recruiting information I have and have seen in the lat 4 years I've not seen anything similar to the USNA booklet you are referring to - I've always felt it as well as the information USNA publishes and aggressively distributes every year of the most recent incoming classes demographics and profile is second to none.
Good Luck in your quest.
